Okay, after a fat finger episode, I will enter this again. I now have the dash rolling down on the dash pins to a degree, but the steering column only goes down so far and so the dash only goes down so far on top of it. I will look next at removing the wires and such; but it still seems it will not go down far enough to get to the A/C box under the dash. I also wonder just how the dash comes out at all since there are plates right above the dash pins that will not allow you to pull the dash up and off the pins. Any thoughts?

Thanks
